Government has simplified the process of registration of warehouses with Warehousing Development and Regulatory Authority (WDRA) by notifying new registration rules, vide GSR 165 (E) dated 23.02.2017 and amendments thereto, vide 1040 (E) dated 22.08.2017 and 251 (E) dated 20.03.2018. The new rules intend to increase the number of registered warehouses with WDRA. This would enhance facility of pledge finance for the farmers through Negotiable Warehouse Receipts system.

Shri Ram Vilas Paswan, the Hon’ble Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution launched the electronic Negotiable Warehousing Receipt (eNWR) System and WDRA Portal on 26.09.2017 to transform the process of registration of warehouses online and to issue e-NWR instead of paper-NWR which will be a more credible financing tool. The eNWR System is being implemented through two repositories - National E-Repositories Ltd. (NERL) and CDSL Commodity Repository Limited (CCRL).
